Jonathan Blow, the developer behind Braid and The Witness, posted to Twitter recently that newly released The Witness is the top-downloaded game on “a certain torrent site.”
It seems The Witness is the #1 game on a certain popular torrent site. Unfortunately this will not help us afford to make another game! :(

Blow noted that he is happy more people are getting to play The Witness, but is still worried Thekla Inc. won’t be able to fund its next game if the piracy continues.
